  1. Two PhD positions: carbon biosequestration in freshwater wetlands

    Southern Cross University / Deakin University, Australia
    Application Deadline: Open until the position is filled

    Wetlands are among earth’s most efficient ecosystems for carbon sequestration, yet this capacity can be offset by emission of methane. This balance between carbon storage and methane emission determines whether wetlands are net sinks for carbon. Redox cycling of sulfur and iron in wetlands can greatly inhibit methane emission, yet … Read more ]
